Catalogue Note

Christian Drentwett II, the son of Christian Drentwett I, was born in Augsburg in 1729.  According to the directory of goldsmiths for 1766, Christian II became a master in 1754 and married Felicitas Nuber the same year.  In 1780, the now widowed Drentwett II married again, this time to Anna Maria Widemann. He was elected chairman for the years 1784 to 1786, and Beschaumeister from 1787 to 1796.  He died in 1801. He worked with his cousin Abraham Drentwett IV on a number of commissions, including the service ordered by Catherine the Great for the governments of Perm and Kharov.
